The Republican National Committee (RNC) released a brutal ad slamming socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) over their stances on letting convicted terrorists vote while they are in prison.
The video features news coverage of the tragic Boston Marathon Bombing and shows a picture of the Islamic terrorist who committed the attack, saying: “Democrats believe this terrorist should be allowed to vote from prison.”
“On April 15, 2013, the excitement of Marathon Monday was shattered as two bombs exploded near the finish line, killing three people and injuring more than 280,” MassLive.com reported. “When the bombs exploded, three people were killed: 8-year-old Martin Richard, restaurant manager Krystle Campbell and Boston University graduate student Lu Lingzi. Many more were seriously injured, some with limbs amputated.” . . .
“Would [you] support enfranchising people like the Boston Marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer?” Sanders was asked by an audience member. “Do you think those convicted of sexual assault should have the opportunity to vote for politicians who could have a direct impact on women’s rights?” . . .
“But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy,” he continued. “Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope … I believe even if they are in jail, they’re paying the price to society, that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.” (Read more from “Watch: RNC Releases Brutal Ad Blasting Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris” HERE)
